Before I leave the topic of ABC, I need to mention a short movie/extended music video which they released in 1983, a year after The Lexicon of Love.

The video, directed by Julien Temple, combined a thin story line with performances of the songs from the album.

The good news is that it’s all available to view on YouTube. Here is part 1:
